The saga of Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie seems to be never-ending, but did Brad go too far with some of his recent comments?

The 47-year-old actor recently opened up about his life in the 90’s to PARADE magazine, and had this to say about his brief marriage to the Friends star:

“I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”

Now, many assume that Brad essentially left Jennifer to be with Angelina, which makes this comment seem a little cold-hearted. Saying you were pretending a marriage was something it wasn’t?

Although Jen is currently happily dating Justin Theroux, after everything that Jen has been through in regards to this situation, this comment fired our readers up big time.

M.Moniz made a great point by saying, “He just lost tons of respect points in my book. Bad mouthing his marriage Aniston isn’t going to change the opinions of those who think low-ly of Angelina. That could have just remained unsaid.”

Ashley said “Wow what a jerk. How could he say that his marriage to Jen was all ‘pretend’. well she’s in a happier place now”

Vicki said, “He is a disgusting man. Brad and Angie are horrible role models. What can they teach their children… ways to cheat and lie. Brad has NO right to even say Jennifer’s name. They are disgusting!”

Miafrea said, “wow, so basically he is saying that he is glad that angelina is the mom of his kids and not jennifer? what a tool. didn’t he get all angry when aniston gave an interview years ago where she called angelina’s actions “not cool”, because he was mad all the old stuff was brought up again; and now this? seems someones ego is bruised – after all, this is the first time jennifer has a very public and equally happy relationship, whereas he and angie can’t catch a break from bad press. i used to like him but this is just it. what a moron.”

TLS also puts it nicely, saying: “Wow, that last quote is really low. He did not need to mention that even if he believes it is true. It really is a slap in the face to say that about someone he hopefully did love once (since he married her) and I felt bad just reading the comment. I can’t imagine how that must make Jennifer Aniston feel.”

danielleakame said, “i get that people will always be interested in his marriage and what not, and the questions will always be asked. but he could have taken the high road and left jen out of it. the marriage ended ages ago. kinda sad.”

Such great feedback! What do YOU guys think about this whole situation? Keep the discussion going in the comments!
